How much does a shop sign cost?
Shop signs can cost in the range of £350 – £2000. This price guide covers a variety of shop front sign designs and styles, of which there are many. On this page we’ve provided more detailed information and price ranges for each style of shop sign, outdoor signage or window signs for your premises. This list is of course by no means complete and there are of course many other types of store front signs which we manufacture but it should hopefully serve as a good starting point when looking for a sign company.
With regards to picking a sign maker, our advice is to look at their online reviews and see what customers are saying about them.
Our new sign manufacturing factory is packed with the latest sign making equipment, we’ve been established since 1971 and have made thousands of signs over the years. We’re proud of our customer reviews on Google, and encourage you to read them.
Below you’ll find a summary of the main types of shop front signs along with a price guide for a typical shop sign.
Please get in touch with us for an accurate quote.
Flat Panel Shop Sign
Available in any size
A flat panel is, quite literally, a sheet of material fixed to the front of your premises with graphics to the face. It’s a low cost way of ensuring your shop sign is advertising to people walking / driving past 24/7.
It is a form of outdoor signage of course and the materials we use are suited for use as such.
‘Flat Panel’ doesn’t mean boring though and our graphic design team will ensure your shop front sign looks incredible for a long time indeed.
Price Guide: £350 – £800+

Shop Sign Letters
Made in-house to any design
Flat Cut Letters are cut from a sheet of material (acrylic / foamex / aluminium / s.steel). They’re a type of lettering sign which can be as complex as you like, remember we’re here to help too.
They can either be fixed flush to the panel or on locator pegs which give the impression of the text floating above the panel.
The photo here shows the words “Drunk Monkey Tattoos” all of which are mounted onto pegs , hidden on the reverse of the letters.
The price you would expect to pay does of course depend on the complexity but the helpful guide below should give an idea.
Price Guide: £550 – £1000+

Perfect for illumination or stand alone
3d sign letters look like they’re made from a solid lump of material but are actually hollow backed allowing for LED illumination to be mounted inside the letters.
When illuminated this gives a fantastic soft glow shining out of the back like a halo of light.
Material options are slightly more limited than flat cut lettering (acrylic / s.steel) but the aesthetics are outstanding.
Price Guide: £900 – £2000+

Folded Tray Shop Sign
Can be internally illuminated for extra impact
A very popular shop sign as there are many ways to enhance a folded tray beyond ‘just’ graphics to the face.
- Stand Off Lettering (Built Up or Flat Cut).
- Cut out Lettering, internally illuminated.
- Flat Cut Lettering applied flat to face.
- Mixture of the above.
Price Guide: £600 – £1800+

Shop Sign Light Box
Panel insert allows for sign to be updated
An aluminium frame (doesn’t rust) with internal LED illumination (no bulbs to change & low running cost).
An acrylic panel with graphics to the front allows light through and diffuses the light so that no ‘hot spots’ are visible.
Both the frame and the panel can be colour matched to suit your requirements.
Price Guide: £1200 – £2000+
Information: A Guide to Shop Front Lightboxes
Pencil Light Illumination
LED illumination at low running costs
A pencil light down/up lighter is a tidy way of illuminating your shop sign without resorting to a lightbox.
The light comes from LEDs within a tube mounted either above or below the sign and shines back and across the face of the sign.
This avoids shedding light needlessly away from your premises.
Available in lengths to suit the width of any sign.
Price Guide: £380+

Thank you so much Signet Signs. Sam and Kieran were awesome. We are a new business and needed some guidance with our designs and signs. We were guided every step of the way with advice from absolute professionals and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked for the almost impossible on a really tight time frame. Cannot recommend these guys and this company enough.

Very easy to use, very responsive staff, great service, will be my first choice of supplier from now on.
Winterbourne Early Years Pre-school
Fantastic, professional service from beginning to end with all from Signet. We are now the proud owners of a fantastic board to promote our preschool. Highly recommend this company – fast, efficient ,informative and easy to discuss requirements with very helpful staff.
Really great quality and service from Signet Signs. They came and helped us re-do all of the signs in the GP surgery. I would definitely recommend them and have used them since for additional work.
I was very happy with the level of service that I received from Signet Signs. The customer service was excellent – including the re-working of artwork prior to manufacture to get exactly what we wanted. We (Pitch Architects) will certainly use them again!
If you are nervous or anxious about getting your signage done then these are the people who will put you at your easy with their friendly, helpful and patient approach they guided me through the process. They listened, asked questions and made suggestions to ensure they understood what I wanted the finished signage to look like. I loved the end product, so a huge thank you to you all.
Very happy with the site boards we ordered! Materials and printing to a high standard – very professional finish. Excellent service too. Friendly staff and good communications, so all went very smoothly. We were lucky enough to find the company through Google Search and would definitely recommend them to others.
Of 5 quotes obtained Signet were the best on price. All the people that I dealt with either by phone or e-mail were polite and very knowledgeable of the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend to others in need of this product or service.
Just wanted to take the time to say we couldn’t be happier with what you did!
